SALON, 2007

CHAMPAGNE

“Unwinding in the glass with notes of citrus oil, wet stones, freshly baked bread, white currants and oyster shell, it's full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a tightly wound core of fruit, racy acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. Concluding with a long and resonant finish, this is a structured and powerful Salon that's a lot more incisive than, for example, the 2002 at the same stage, but which also carries more muscle and substance than a leaner vintage such as 2007...” Robert Parker 98+/100

Histoire et anecdotes

Salon was founded by the visionary Eugène-Aimé Salon in 1921. Born in Champagne, Aimé Salon began a dynamic career in fur trading. Epicurean, he dreamt of his own Champagne, the nicest that ever existed, a singular and unique wine. He identified the best soils and started the production of the first Blanc de Blanc. At the end of the war, he wanted his friends to enjoy his wine and that is why he founded Salon.
